of injuries and on eyewitness reports. these kinds of discussions are emerging as barack obama, the american president, talks about things with his security advisers and terms of an american response is, indeed, there has been the use of chemical weaponry. president obama has repeatedly said if a side uses chemical weapons, that would be a egregious, and then foreign and american intervention would be justified. now, this comes as the united states uses its naval forces to move closer, and we are hearing from the united states that it would be prepared to strike if, indeed, called upon to do so. this comes as serious and state television said soldiers entered a number of tunnels that had been used by rebel fighters, and there, they found evidence of chemical waste. there were empty shells that had marks on them made in saudi arabia, saudi arabia being a critic of the president, bashar al-assad, and there seem to be a lot of reports and evidence that the rebels, in fact, are responsible for carrying out these chemical attacks. all of the footage and all of the reports circulating online are,

[ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, thank you very much. we've got a great audience here. and let me say welcome to "huckabee" from the fox news studios in new york city. all right. train wreck, hopelessly complex, will destroy the 40 hour work week, devastate american working people. those are some comments about obama care. those were the ones made by people that supported it. president obama rejected republican input on the bill, then he's complained ever since that the republicans aren't in favor of it. i wonder if he looked around to see
ahead. president obama has also been in close touch with teeders ---door key leader us of our allies. make no mistake, president obama believes there mississippi be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. thank you. >> i'm trace gallagher in for shepard smith. just heard secretary of said john kerry giving his first accounts of the crisis in syria. the secretary delivers litany of what they believe is the proof that chemical weapons were used in syria. as important as what he laid out is what when he did not lay out, is a time line of dealing with syria, going after the regimes. what the did lay out there have to be consequences for any action, any chemical weapon used and said the president at some point in time will decide what to do but made it very, very clear the secretary of state believes there will be some type of action used against sirra, but keep in mind, we have u.n. inspectors on the ground, and seemed to indicate that
the time. lou: confident in her assessment that syria had already crossed that red line. the obama administration and responded. until a few moments later when she offered up this blatant contradiction. >> we still believe that they don't have the capability to use chemical weapons. that is not changed. again, looking into the facts on the ground. there's no reason if there is nothing to hide for the regime not to let the investigative team and. lou: what is going on? the statements tested department is not seem to know either way. president obama announced after that he has directed intelligence agencies to find out what happened. again, joining us now, fox news military analyst. let's turn first if we make to this confusing series of remarks by the state department in which they have one moment have a knowledge that they believe there is chemical weapons available to the president, he has used them and within moments the spokesperson saying that they don't know whether he has them and doubt that he does. even as the president says he is a signing that question to our intelligence
reported such weapons were found in an armory belonging to opposition forces. u.s. president barack obama discussed the situation with david cameron on saturday. they expressed grave concern over the use of chemical weapons. they also agreed to consult closely about potential responses by the international community. obama convened a meeting of the national security council. he received a detailed review of the options the international community can take in reaction to the alleged use of chemical weapons. u.s. media report that the u.s. reinforced guided missile destroyers off the coast of syria. observers say obama remains cautious about military intervention without any concrete evidence. >>> the post communist party official has denied allegations by a prosecution witness on the fourth day of his trial. the court held a hearing on the chart that bo blocked an investigation into a murder case. in august 2012, bo's wife was convicted of killing a british businessman. bo's former subordinate, former police chief, appeared as a witness for the prosecution. a series of scandals involving b
in iraq a long period of time and unlike the situation how president obama handled it in iraq -- i mean in libya. >> congressman, you've been back and forth from d.c. as we look at the 50th anniversary of the "i have a dream" speech and switch gears to that right now. the president is going to be having a meet at the white house with some of the faith leaders. you're going to head back down later this week for the actual date of the anniversary. i want to play this little bit. here is what john lewis said. >> can the past 50 years, we have witnessed what i like to call a nonviolent revolution in america. a revolution of values, the revolution of ideas. and our country is a better country. we have a lot of work to do. the dream is not yet fulfilled. >> that 16-minute speech laid out a dream. how do you think dr. king would discuss the dream today? >> that we have made a lot of progress. no question about that. that we have come a long way. you look at fact only five measures of the congressional black caucus and 23 now. we cannot sit back and rest. we have to move forward with economics.
hours. that is if an it's a big "if" the president orders military action. today, the obama administration laid out its case for retaliation because it says the syrian government did, in fact, use chemical weapons against its own people. >> anyone who could claiming that an attack of this staggering scale could be contrived or fabricated, needs to check their conscience and their own moral compass. what's before us today is real and it is compelling. president obama believes that there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. >> so what's the reaction from syria? cnn's fred had rare, inside access to damascus and cnn is the only western television network in damascus now. fred, tell us what's the reaction from the ground there? >> reporter: hi, jessica. the syrian government hadn't put out statements after kerry's speech but they are reacting and you can certainly see they're at least hearing the message. what's going on is the foreign minister of the country has called for awe press conferenc
? >>barack obama accepts his party's nomination on the anniversary of the march on washington. -- on the anniversary of the march on washington. >>> welcome back to a second look. this week marks the 50th anniversary of martin luther king's dream speech. it was only a weeks after that speech that a bomb would go off in birmingham alabama and kill four girls. it would take decades for the trials to end. >> reporter: birmingham 16th street baptist church had been bombed. three girls, two 14, one 11 were killed as the church prepared for service. reverend abraham lincoln woods remembers the anger he felt as he looked at the rubble of the church. >> if these terrorists, if these fanatics wanted to kill somebody, why didn't they single out those of us who were actively involved in the civil rights struggle? >> probably no admonition of jesus has been more difficult to follow than the command to love your enemy. >> reporter: it was perhaps the most dastardly act. it came when george wallis was railing against segregation. >> i say segregation, now, segregation tomorrow, and segregat
barack obama was born to go on freedom rides, black people and white people couldn't be seated on a bus or a train together to travel through the south. >> former secretary of state colin powell commented on the trayvon martin verdict on "face the nation." >> i think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but i don't know if it will have staying power. these cases come along and blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time they're forgotten. >>> texas senator ted cruz admitted republicans do not have the votes to defund obama care, but says he is, quote, not convinced that president obama wouldn't defund his own health care law if congress gave him the opportunity to do so. >>> at the end of the video music awards last night, president barack obama showed his support for katy perry's finale and her song "roar" by tweeting to her after she tweeted about obama care. he said thanks for spreading the word, #roar. >> michelle and her daughters went to broadway to see the play "trip to bountdful." >>> organizers might be
take a look at it. and i will certainly not hesitate to call president obama if i think we need more than we have. >> it's unreal. >> reporter: from the air you can get a sense of how big the fire has grown. this is new video from a national guard plane. the fire has grown to 150,000 acres of forestland. more than 4,000 homes and other buildings are in danger still and firefighters are also working to save two giant sequoia growths. >> those trees were up to 2,000 years old. we have the crews trying to save them. we'll backburn through them. put in sprinkler systems. >> reporter: the rim fire moved in to yosemite park over the weekend. although firefighters don't believe the fire will reach the valley itself. the bigger concern is controlling the southern and when edges of the fire to stop it -- western edges of the fire to stop it from spreading to other communities. >> there's a lot of folks that live up here. we're putting a lot of effort to keep the fire as far away as we can. >> reporter: meanwhile san francisco's ter supply is in jeopardy. flames are still moving toward hetch h
obama there must be accountability for those who would use the world most heinous weapons against the world's most honorable people. >> the high-profile trial draws to a close in china. now he also awaits the verdict. animals have long world rushes arctic oceans. oil and gas are moving and. tonight we look at the potential impact. welcome to our viewers on public television in america and around the globe. a moral obscenity is what the u.s. secretary of state is accusing the assad regime of perpetrating against its own. today he ramped up the pressure by saying the syrian government was behind the use of chemical weapons last week and has now destroyed the evidence. this comes as inspectors trying to get to the scene of the alleged attack were fired on today. , watched byamascus the world, inspector set up this morning to visit one of the site of last week's alleged nerve gas attack. the car was replace. the survivors led to hundreds to death. they also examined what appears to be missions. it's been five days since the attack. the international manti is pressing to know who carri
obama to defend his red line on chemical weapons which rebels claim killed more than a thousands people in syria. >> we cannot sit still. >> reporter: syrian forces shelled so much it corrupted any evidence the u.n. might find this week. a u.s. official tells cnn behind the scenes multiple international sources have collected evidence from that site. the official says the sources took tissue samples and other evidence shortly after the attack. it was being analyzed in secure locations. that's why the white house tone changed so quickly from friday's get the inspectors in to sunday's it's too late to be credible. it's why an administration official sounded so confident in saying there's little doubt at this point that a chemical weapon was used by the syrian regime against civilians. the president's newly updated options include cruise missiles launched from one of four navy destroyers or jets firing from outside syrian air space. >> we're prepared to exercise whatever option, if he decides to employ one of those options. >> chris lawrence joins us from the pentagon. tell us some of the
. >> president obama and secretary of state kerry are urgently reaching out to partners in europe and the arab world rallying a coalition for a military response. >> i do think the administration feels like that there's no question chemicals were used. i think they're rallying support around our nato aallies and hopefully come to congress for an authorization when we get back. >> we cannot in the 21st century allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity, that people can be killed in this way and that there are no consequences for it. and so we believe it's very important that there is a strong response. >> and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. . >> free at last, free at last, thank god almighty we are free at last. >> over the weekend thousands walked in the footsteps of those civil rights pioneers. heros from 50 years ago and all this week, we'll be bringing you special coverage right here looking back at the key moments of that week in august 1963 that fortified a movement and changed the course of history. today, the women who shaped civil rights with merril
is will the united states act? top republican congressman mike mccall says president obama has four options as we go forward. >> i don't think the american people have an appetite or troops on the ground. i know the military is laying out options for the president. there are four warships off the coast of syria. missiles are an option to try to make out these chemical stockpiles. i think that's an option the president should be looking at. my chief concern is that we have allowed this to fester. we have had a wait and see policy and hoping for the best. martha: congressman mike mccall will join us in america's news room coming up in a couple minutes. bill has a map of the area from the air. bill: syria is here. and damascus there. over the weekend you had four navy warships move into the area, situated off the western coast of syria in the eastern mediterranean. they could take action if necessary. you have two naval aircraft carriers, much bigger vessels. one off the coast of yemen and one off the mouth of the persian gulf. if they were to make a move and come to the suez canal it would tack severa
the obama administration is questioning whether any evidence the inspectors find will tell the real story. the suspected attacks took place outside of damascus. the area has seen heavy shelling since the alleged chemical attack. and that poses a difficulty for inspectors. the white house doesn't seem to have a lot of faith in syria's promise to cooperate. here is al jazeera's white house correspondent mike viqueira. >> reporter: the administration said there is little doubt. the red line has been crossed, the question now will there be a military price to pay for the assad regime. now the white house says it's too late. any belated decision by the r regime would now be considered too late to be credible. the navy has firepower to the region. chuck hagel traveling in malaysia said that th they are ready. >> the administration has asked to be prepared for options of all contingencies. we have done that, and again we're prepared to exercise whatever option if he decides to employ one of those options. >> reporter: since the chemical attacks and the horrific images of death and suffering seen
and a moral obscenity. on august 20, 2012, president obama said that the use of a, quote, whole bunch of chemical weapons in syria would be a red line. now almost exactly a year later tens of thousands of lives have been lost. secretary kerry now says the president is talking with members of congress and key allies to make an informed decision on a response. meanwhile, half of americans can't even find the country on a map. that is not an exaggeration. recent polls show overwhelmingly that americans simply do not want to get involved in syria. it should be noted also that secretary kerry's tough language came before inspectors from the united nations could return any findings from syria. those inspectors ran into some danger of their own while examining one of alleged sites of this chemical attacks. fred? >> reporter: it was a pretty tough day for the u.n. weapons inspectors but they said also quite a productive day. their car came under fire right after they left from the hotel they were staying at. they said all of this happened in the buffer zone between the area controlled by the
move president obama and other western powers will act on. but growing indications they will act because some vital shipping sports, for at least much of europe, is at stake. which means stable oil prices here could be at stake. phil is tracking this closely. we should first posit we're talking about crude which is shipped through the suez candle -- canal. >> the fallout could be swift. we have seen prices of crude and oil price goes up in anticipation of problems in the middle east, since the fourth of july, since the situation in libya and egypt and then seara. we have put in a huge premium on the prices, and because of the area, in every major oil producer in the world has a major stake in this, either one side or the other, and are not on the same side. it could be the biggest energy crisis we have seen in years if we get into a war in syria. >> neil: for the time being in europe's interest, even more than our own, for the time being to do something about this. they're feeling the spike now. right? >> they are feeling the spike in europe. this is a great story. if this had ha
the united nations investigation is not complete. this is the unilateral conclusion of the obama administration, presented dramatically today by a man not usually given to public shows of emotion, u.s. secretary of state john kerry stating it is america's conclusion that syria used chemical weapons. >> and despite the excuses and equalify indications that some have manufactured, it is undeniable. president obama believes there must be accountable for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. >> the pentagon tells nbc news, larry, that tonight five u.s. warships with cruise missile firing capability, four destroyers, one submarine are stationed in the mediterranean sea. the u.n. inspectors did get in the sites, but they get in so late, experts say, they may not be able to get the kind of residue tests needed to verify the use of chemical weapons, so the obama administration's move past that. it says it's happened. now comes the reaction. larry, back
